Our next UK learning analytics network meeting is taking place at the University of Exeter. Exeter is relatively advanced with its learning analytics initiative, and we’re particularly looking forward to hearing from Professor Wendy Robinson, academic dean for students, and her colleagues, who will kick off the day.
One of the main themes of the day will be examining the links between learning gain and learning analytics. Dr Camille Kandiko Howson from King's College London will present on measuring learning gain: big data, learning analytics, tests and surveys. We’ll also be hearing from Dr Ian Scott, associate dean for student experience at Oxford Brookes who leads both his university’s projects in these areas.
As well as the usual opportunities for networking with others implementing learning analytics at their institutions, there’ll be a chance to hear about Jisc’s latest innovations in the area, including demos of Data Explorer (a new tool for analysing your institution’s learning analytics data) and Study Goal (the student app).
In the afternoon Dr John Whitmer will present from California on his latest research findings. John is director for analytics and research at Blackboard and one of the leading experts in the field.
